The excitement was high at the sixth annual National Archery in the Schools (NASP)-Georgia State Tournament! Archery students were at the top of their game with 15 of 25 schools shooting qualifying scores for the NASP National Tournament, May 11-12, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. This national event will host more than 7,000 student archers from nearly 40 states making it the largest archery competition in the world.
WINNING SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS
Winners at the NASP-Georgia State Tournament include:
All division winning teams automatically qualify for nationals, while several other schools met qualifying scores to reach the year’s National Tournament in May. A “team” consists of 16 to 24 shooters with at least five members of the opposite gender. Nearly 40 percent of the state tournament field was female.
Archery teams that competed in the Georgia-NASP state tournament this week had to win their division at one of five regional tournaments in January and February of this year or shoot a regional score high enough to be selected as a wildcard team. More than 900 student archers competed in the five regional tournaments.
